r-f* HE original of the "Stage Coach Pictures" so often used in the former 
\Jf Muse to contrast the old days with the later ones, was a drawing 
by Mrs. Gustave Elessner. Mr Blessner, Musical Director at Saint Mary's 
in the forties, had il lithographed for the use on the cover of some waltzes 
which he composed and had published in 1S45. On the title page in addition 
to the Stage Coach Picture was printed: "The Flower of the South: A 
Collection of Characteristic Waltzes, Composed for the Piano and Dedi- 
cated to the Young Ladies of St. Mary's School, Raleigh, N. C." 



' JH' ' I E old M?(.se, after twenty-six years of publica- 
\J t ion, has laid aside its title, confusing because of 
other Muses — the Mu Athletic Association and 
the Muse, too commonly railed Built 7 in - ami lias 
adopted Stage Coach as a mure distinguishing name. 
The real "Stage Coach" was so dear to St. Mary's in 
the early forties when Mr. Gustave Blessner dedicated 
his "Flower of the South" to St. Mary's girls, that we 
have revived its memory in the middle twenties when 
St. Mary's is still the "Flower id' the South," hoping 
thereby to pay tribute to the tradition of her productive 
past, desiring even more to have a vehicle to draw 
her into a purposeful future. 


BECAUSE she has accomplished without fear or 
compromise those tilings which arc hard to do; 
because she has set an example of truth and loyalty and 
unbiased justice; because she has created a standard for 
all St. .Mary's girls by her very art of living: 

In behalf of the whole school, the Senior Class of 
Nmeteen-tweuty-five, with gratitude and affection, dedi- 
cates the twenty-seventh yearbook of St. Mary's

Tune: "Believe Me, If All Those Endearing Young Charms" 

£TT. MARY'S! Wherever thy daughters may be 

j^^J They love thy high praises to sing 1 , 

And In tell of thy beauties of campus and tree 

Around which sweet memories < ■ 1 i 1 1 li. ; 

They may wander afar, out of reach of thy name 

Afar nut of sight of thy grove, 

But the thought of Saint Mary's aye kindles a flame 

Of sweet recollections and love. 

Beloved Saint Mary's! How greal is our debt! 

Thou hast cared for thy daughters full well; 

They can never thy happy instructions forget, 

Nor fail of thy virtues to tell. 

The love that I hey feel is a heritage pure; 

An experience wholesome and sweet. 

Through fast rolling years it will grow and endure 

Be .a lamp and a guide to their feet. 

.May tlie future unite all the good of the past 
With the best that new knowledge can bring. 
Ever onward and upward thy course! to the last 
lie thou steadfast in every good thing. 
Generations to conic may thy fair daughters still 
fondly think of thy halls and thy grove, 
And carry thy teaching o'er woodland and bill 
Of earnestness, wisdom and love.

Historical Fads 

St. Mary's was not always 

The cloister it is now, 
For once the boys were urged to come, 

Invited in. I trow! 
But that was back in thirty-two, 

All that is over now. 

It's very hard, indeed, to think 

That once boys big and bold 
Went noisily with heavy tread. 

Within our gentle hold, 
And shook with boisterous mirth the walls 

That our quiet cells enfold. 

Oh — once this was a school tor boys. 

And on the tender grass 
Where our fair maidens stroll demure. 

Rude boys were wont to pass. 
But that was back in thirty-two. 

Those days are gone, alas! 

In eighteen forty-two 'tis known. 

Came Dr. Albert Smedes, 
To found a school for Southern girls, 

And elevate their needs. 
He taught them twice or thrice a week 

In Abstracts or in deeds. 

[ 19] 

And on Saturday afternoon each girl 

Must mend each torn glove. 
But when Madame was safely gone they'd draw 

From their hidden treasure trove, 
A piece of bread or a slice of cheese 

And cook on the cosy stove. 

And when the war came all the girls 

Were glad to do their share. 
And after they'd served and stitched and saved, 

And rolled white cloth with care, 
They'd march up and down on Uillsboro Street, 

Playing soldier with Hags in their hair. 

At the soirees the school gave 

They never, never danced. 
But all the little girls in trills 

With lace and curls enhanced. 
Sat stiffly on sedate tall chairs, 

And gazed in awe. entranced. 

And often these soirees it seems, 
Would lead to something more, 

For, often, handsome men were seen 
(By girls behind the door), 

Waiting for their wise young maids 
From three till sometimes four. 

[20 1 

So years passed merrily enough., 
With much of work and play. 

And girls came in from everywhere, 
Some only for the day. 

Because St. Mary's name was known, 
Some came from far away. 

Under a new regime, the grove 
Was lined with waiting men, 

When they could come to Chapel 
And renew their faith again. 

(And, incidentally, they saw 
The fairest maidens then.) 

And all the while St. Mary's grew, 

Conveniences fast came. 
While many of her former girls 

To her brought their bright fame. 
Till all the State has come to love 

The honor of her name. 

The girls are always much the same, 
(They've been alike since Eve), 

And Seniors always shed sad tears 
When they must finally leave. 

(We've saved them that in time they may 
A Raleigh drought relieve.)

, I i/rf /''''-' from Margaret Mason Young, 1SQ0 
In ;i grove of stately oak trees, 

Where the sunlight lips. 
Stands Saint Mary's true and noble 

'Neath the Southern skies. 

Far and wide, oh sound her praises, 

Chorus full and free. 
Hail, Saint Mary's, Alma Mater. 

Hail all hail to thee! 

Well we love the little chapel, 

Ever hold n dear; 
Hear the echoes of the music, 

Rising soft and clear, 

Far and wide, ete. 

There the ivy and the roses 

CHmb the old stone wjiU, 
There the sweet, enticing bird notes 

Sound their magic call. 




A Sono of Graduation Day 
{After "Good-bye, QhU" from "Chin Chin 
We're the happiest, girls in all the realn 

We feel as though we'd triumphed over 

We've reached a goal we've ever sought. 
A day of which we've ever thought, 

That wondrous day on which we graduate. 
Of course we've not had only sun and floi 

But storms and clouds have braced us in the 
Like every other girl we've wasted hours, 

But now all's done — the future looks be 
And yet we say with heartfelt sigh 
For the happy days of the years gone by- 
Good-bye, school, we're through, 
Dear school where we have met, 
We say good bye to you 
With very real regret. 
Our day of jubilation 
Is full of fascination. 
But we'll e'er to you he true. 
Good-bye, school, 
Good-bye, school, we're through. 

We've often read in poems and romances 
That some day in some way, if we but wait, 

The thing we seek both far and wide — 
The thing for which we've ever sighed — 
Will come to us — 'tis so deemed by fate. 

And so it's all come true as in a story, 
Commencement morning with its golden sun, 

Has risen upon our sight in all its glory, 
For us there'll never be such other one, 
And yet we sny with heartfelt sigh 
For the happy days of years gone by. 
Good-bve. school, we're through, etc

Leaving me, for the once, the floor.

St. Mary's and Miss Katie go hand in hand. You can't say the one without thinking of the other. 
Miss Katie )ttrann St. Marys and all that it stands for in its brightest traditions and highest ideals, She 
is a steadfast example of loyalty, honor and truth. Every St. Mary's girl who has known her is 
indelibly impressed by her kindliness and goodness, and is unconsciously ennobled by her example.

The School Council 

^" HK School Council was instituted by the Rector at the beginning of the Session 
V-/ 1919*20 for the purpose of giving the Student Body a real share in the government of 
the school. The growth of the power and influence of the student government has been 
slow of necessity, but it is hoped that under the guidance of the Rector and the Lady 
Principal the joint council will effect a successful rule of the school.

"Cat" isn't always the lovable 
lamb. Sometimes she has been 
known to be a very greedy little 
pig, as the empty cracker box in 
room No. 253 will testify. But 
once to see Catherine's smile makes 
you quite forget that. It's a won- 
der that that perfect-tooth feature 
hasn't been capitalized by Forhun's 
Tooth Paste Company. 

It is unanimously agreed that the 
record-making, never-to-be-forgotten 
'25's stunts and entertainments 
have achieved their fame through 
the efforts of Cat. She it is who 
has done the work and somehow 
always failed to come in on the 
party itself. Poor girl, her second 
name is hard luck. We hope she 
won't have to carry the weight of 
the world on her most lovable 
shoulders when she leaves these 
"sheltering halls."

Little and dainty, bubbling over 
with the joy of living, and in steps 
Betty! She always holds the cen- 
ter of attention with her dancing, 
for Betty is like a feather carried 
along with the music. And sh-h-h 
we will tell you a secret. Betty's 
been to Europe! She's told us her 
experiences over and over again, 
and we're proud that one member 
of our class gets mail with foreign 
stamps on it. 

Thus for two reasons, Betty adds 
to the class of '25, but she doesn't 
spend all her time dancing or read- 
ing foreign mail! She is a most 
obliging chaperon, and has many 
friends outside the Seniors who 
know her best. We predict a bril- 
liant future for Betty, and we ex- 
pect the story-book tale to come 
true, when we'll say we're proud 
to have gone to school with her! 
We wish her all success and will 
always remember her as the lively 
little girl who brightened Senior 
Hall on cloudy days.

"Pris" does adore to shake a pat- 
ter to Paul Whiteman's latest jazz, 
but, unlike most of us. she doesn't 
let a good time interfere with her 
studies. For instance, who of us 
could go to a dance the night before 
we came back from the Christmas 
holidays and then get right to work 
on our Senior Essay? Well, Pris 
did! She likes to recite original 
French from Corneilles Horace, too. 
French is not the only foreign lan- 
guage she has met. She can parlez- 
vous just as well in Spanish as she 
can in French and if "Kat" Morris 
passes Spanish it will be all Pris's 
fault (just ask Kat.) Pris is a 
good sport and a friend you like 
to own. 

From a chorister to a chorus girl 
is a far call, but Grace can make 
the grade. In fact, grade-making 
is her specialty. Not that we are 
jealous — or even envious — because 
we all must admit that Grace cer- 
tainly earns well her most excel- 
lent grades. But to return to her 
above-mentioned versatility: She 
dances in "Gloria Pokes" like Ruth 
St. Denis; she sings in the choir 
and in "Boots and Shoes" like 
Schuman-Heink ; she beats a volley 
ball like an Olympic champion (ask 
the Mu's); she lends herself to 
every one and any one who needs 
her. And that's Grace! 

But alas — she is not perfect. She 
just detests fat people of the mas- 
culine gender. In fact, extremely 
thin ones are the only ones who 
seem to exist for her!

Must we really confess it? Kath- 
erine is the one blot on the history 
of our "promising class." She is 
the second senior in seven years to 
chew gum. Alas and alack! We 
can never live down that disgrace. 
To some extent her virtues atone 
for this mammoth sin. List to 
them: She's arch-president of the 
W. C. B.'s ("what cost beauty?"); 
she's the champion sleeper on His- 
tory N and Sociology; she's the lit- 
erary genius who wrote up the 
athletics in this volume; she's the 
object of adoration of countless 
[■rushes, and one of admiration for 
her many friends; she's the ring- 
leader, pep-leader, cheer-leader (and 
inspirer) of the Sigmas; she even 
is nearly the "most influential." 
Above all, she's the epitome of 
sportsmanship and paldom. If we 
said half we should we would be 
accused of exaggeration, or Kath- 
erine of being the Editor's pet.

and we agree, but as Solomon said : 
"What are you going to do about 
it?" Mary is just about the best 
editor of the Muse we've ever seen, 
and the result is that the Muse is 
the best that it's ever been. And 
that's not all, either. Those English 
tests that are the bane of our poor 
existence don't phase that girl a bit. 
She knocks them lor a row of an- 
tique bedsteads.

Virginia loves berries but her 
favorite is the Salisbury — can you 
blame her? Neither can we. Vir- 
ginia is a combination of brains 
and fun, and if you don't think so 
just look at that smile. She al- 
ways has the happy faculty of both 
drawing lovely ladies and listening 
at the same time to Mr. Stone ex- 
press his vie'ws on the why and 
wherefore of Sociology. But Mr. 
Stone just can't seem to realize to 
save his life that she can do both 
at the same time. In spite of it 
all Virginia is the "berries," and 
you arc glad to call her your pal. 
(And sh-h-h-h, she just loves Rus- 
sia and Jerusalem. We wunrter

"Bobby will do it." and sure 
enough she does. Just what we'd 
do without her ever-present help is 
a question with which we are for- 
tunately not confronted. It is a 
pity, however, that Bobby has de- 
generated in such a degree this 
year (the exception to the rule 
about the Senior influence for 
good.) "Would she have skipped a 
class last year? Would she have 
taken a tub after lights? Would 
she brazenly have used rouge and 
(don't tell it I lipstick? We are 
forced to admit that she wouldn't, 
and likewise that she doesn't qualify 
this year for any silver conduct 

But this is only gentle (?) teas- 
ing! Bobby is an indispensable 
member of the class, and fortunate 
we are to have her with us.

The- last of the Lays! This is 
the honor that has been conferred 
on the class of '25. to have as one 
of its members the last of the Lays 
to come to S. M. S. Since 1907 
one sister or other has been up- 
holding the honor of the school. 
And Virginia is no exception. 

She is always there and with a 
steady hand and head, whether 
rushing around on Wednesday night 
to find somebody to go to the Al- 
tar Guild, or trying to hide from 
Miss Fenner what she is making 
for the Senior Vaudeville during 
art period, or saying politely (?) 
at the postofflce window, for the 
one hundred and seventy-fifth time, 
"No, we have no stationery or foun- 
tain pens," to each of the 175 girls 
in school. 

But there is just one queer thing 
about Virginia. She seems to be 
(lueerly affected by birds. Every 
time a Hawk conies flying around 
or if she ever hears from one, 
flightiness is a small thing of which 
to accuse her!

she always can.

in determination and real applica-

Has anybody ever seen Lib when 
she wasn't talking a blue streak? 
tf so, we wish that person would 
notify the Annual staff, so that a 
special page could be dedicated to 
"Her Silent Moment." 

However, that very fact makes 
Lib one of the most attractive and 
popular members of the Senior 
Class. Her loyalty and lovable 
character have won many friends 
for her during her two years at St. 
Mary's and everybody will miss her 
next year (especially the manager 
of the Blue Moon.) She is not only 
popular with the fairer sex, but by 
her fascinating smile she has 
stepped into the hearts of many 
Carolina and Harvard men, and we 
hope that she will find as much 
sunshine in her own life as she has 
made for others, because everybody 
loves Lib.

If you saw Julia chewing; gum 
and playing the piano in the Senior 
Orchestra, you thought she was 
a very gay. unreliable little gamin. 
But if you tiptoed into Senior Hall 
on another day and saw her care- 
fully painting posters for the Sen- 
ior Stunt, you thought she was 
artistic and efficient. If you ven- 
tured into the Auditorium and 
heard her playing one little ditty 
over and over until the Seniors 
registered every emotion Miss 
Davis wanted, you thought she was 
of a heavenly disposition. But 
when you saw her go out on Mon- 
day, you knew that she was dainty 
and pretty as a picture and quite 
the most stylish girl in the Senior 
Class. She's talented and versatile 
and lovable. So not once in a blue 
moon has the class missed anybody 
quite as much.

We think Ellen still believes in 
Santa Claus, at least, she is firmly 
convinced that the "stars are 
junks." Has poetry ever done that 
for you? Yes, she still persists in 
absorbing as much high-brow lit- 
erature as she can find time for. 
We must confess, however, that 
there isn't so much time because 
Ellen really has a lot to do. What 
school entertainment has ever suc- 
ceeded without her leadership? 
What class has ever gotten along 
without her timely assistance in 
answering obscure questions bril- 
liantly? (Have you ever bluffed 
Ellen ? ) And what would the 
E.A.P.'e do without her? What 
could any of us have done without 
her? We can wonder only.

Rising bell rings! A floor creaks! 
A step trips down the hall! A tub

warble "When morning gilds the

more." Chorus (from all the other 
rooms in Senior Hall) "Neither will

has thus cheerily begun.

"This is the last time I do anything 
in the Literary Society; positively 
the last"— "Preside again?" 

All of which proves her versatile 
nature. For she van and does do 
everything well she attempts, and 
she attempts everything. (Her 7 
a.m. solo hasn't yet progressed to 
the "attempt" stage.)

We have always regretted that 
"Cat" could ii tit live with us in 
Senior Hall, but of course, since 
she is a day pupil, we can only be 
with her during school hours. How- 
ever if we didn't see her but 
once a month that would be long 
enough to make us love her be- 
cause, unlike most red-headed girls, 
she has not the slightest degree of 
temper and there is nothing that 
she wouldn't (In for the Seniors. In 
fact, she does everything from ride 
us around the grove to bringing us 
'■dope'" from the "Little Store." 

It is useless to predict her fu- 
ture, because with her unselfish and 
lovable disposition, things could 
never go wrong for "Cat." 

Just mention Willie's name and 
some one is bound to say, "Don't 
you remember when — " and off they 
go to describe one of her numerous 
escapades. You see, Willie is al- 
ways ready for anything, except 
perhaps a meeting of the Church 
School Service League or French 
M! One called her "exuberant." 
and I've heard it said she's "care- 
free," but ask any one and they'll 
all say she is a "mighty good 
friend!" Willie doesn't limit her 
admirers to the campus, either, 
judging from the innumerable spe- 
cials and packages she's always re- 
ceiving; and no wonder, because 
she is a ray of sunshine if ever any 
one was. You can't have the blues 
around her. She is a tonic that 
it's a real pleasure to take, and we 
prophesy that she'll laugh her way 
through life, making friends where- 
ever she goes.

I'll be glad to," is Delia's answer 
to anything any one wants clone. 
She's obliging and she's so sweet 
about it that she really makes you

"Dainty" ought to be her middle 
name, at least the Seniors think so, 
because what could they have done 
if Delia hadn't always been ready 
with her "dancing act"? She's a 
quaint little somebody, but we 
suspect her of doing much deep 
thinking on the sly. She is par- 
ticularly fond of dreaming on So-

always deep "sociological problems" 
that claim her attention. On 
exams, she makes up for it though

"Two points for the Sigmas" — 
oh, yes, Jackie did it. My dear, is 
there anything she hasn't done? 
To say nothing of singing in the 
choir, she just about runs the 
Sigmas; she presides officially at 
the E'.A.P. meetings; she makes a 
perfect Bassanio, or a jail-bird or 
a chorus girl at will; and then the 
sun rises and sets in Jackie (in 
Sociology and History N.) No one 
could ask for more. 

Her faults? Well, she does love 
wine crackers — and a minister's 
daughter, at that. And she abso- 
lutely detests crushes. And she 
has even been known to be guilty 
of loving toasted marshm allows, if 
you please. Taking it all in all. 
we're rather afraid so many sins 
have inevitably doomed her to an 
ignominious end. Aren't you?

Epilogue: Senior Poem 

Tis done. The curtain falls upon our play. 
New players come to thrall you in their sway, 
While we. forgot, forgetting on the road 
Will take out singing down some other way. 

But where we go shall go St. Mary's praise. 
For she has lit the labyrinthine maze 
Of our stage sets with bright encouragement 
And listened, sympathetic, to our lays. 

And where we go shall go her songs, unasked, 
For she has understood when we were tasked 
To learn our lines; and she has clear, true eyes 
That saw the best in us when it was masked. 

The players have learned many things from you 
As you sit, thoughtful, watching in review 
This play of our brief months. They try to play 
Be your ideal — be simple, kindly, true. 

Our play is done — and finished once for all, 
There is no time to take a curtain call. 
Read over some lost line, or stage new scenes. 
The players knew their cues. Time cannot stall. 

Forgive the faults that proved themselves aaniss. 
Forget the ordeal scenes, hard laugh and hiss. 
Remember joy that came from this short play — 
The company's disbanded after this.

The Swan's Song 

The Senior Class History 

This is station 1-9-2-5 of St. Mary's School. Raleigh, N. C. broadcasting. Our next 
number on the program will be our bedtime story told by Aunt Emmy — "The Tale of the 
Ugly Ducklings." Put your thumbs in your mouths, stop crying and listen! 

Once upon a time, my dears, way back in September, 1921, sixty-nine awkward, ugly, 
lonesome little baby ducklings arrived at this noble institution. They really were very 
pathetic and distressingly ignorant. Can you imagine, children, they didn't even know 
why the bells rang there? But, of course, in an all-too-short-time the quantity and 
quality of those bells taught them their direful message. And then, another thing 
puzzled them, they could find no place to keep those inevitable and most necessary 
things — hats for chapel. If it had not been for one person — a sympathetic, under- 
standing giant — their story would have ended there. But then, Mr. Cruikshank was 
always kind to every one. Then with Mabel Hawkins as their peppy, enthusiastic 
president, they led the other classes a gay pace with their parties, 'n' minstrels n' 

The Christmas holidays arrived remarkably soon and the Rock, where they lived, 
was nearly swept away in the rush of excitement before our little ducklings left. Now 
children, you must never do as they did the night before they went home — they wad- 
dled all the night in the halls quacking "Jingle Bells" and "We Won't Go Home Till 

When January came they nearly wished they bad remained under their mothers' 
wings, for some terrible things happened, which will happen to you some day "if you 
don't watch out." And they had to pretend they were sardines with their closets for 
tin cans, until these ogres. Exams, passed. 

But in spite of these undeniable hardships the sunny spring days passed all too 
rapidly. Before you can say "peppermint candy" they were singing their very own 
duckling song to the Seniors on Class Day in May: 

We are a band of preplets 

A sitting over here. 
We are so very sori'y 
Because <ommencenu j nt's here. 

But they hadn't much cause for grief because September soon arrived again. Alas, 
the ducklings were still ugly, but a careful observer might spy some of the soft fuzz 
of superiority growing upon them. And they had a right to be proud, for although 
many of them dropped by the wayside, some new ones, named Whitney Holt, 'n' Betty 
Ragland, 'n' Katherine Morris, came to frolic on their pond. Mabel Hawkins still helped 
them make duckling history with her leadership. Their flock party was particularly 
fun — a "tacky" party. Those ducks who were fond of jelly roll must have been 
happy for they sang in a "Jelly-roll" chorus arranged by one Jo Gould. And so 
the season on the pond passed! 

Once more September came, and this time we could easily see that the ugly little 
ducklings were fast blossoming — into the real awkward age — one must excuse that static 
this evening. Delia Saunders. Anna Whaley Smith and Kalista Hood entered this fold 
that felt quite important at the title, "Freshmen." 

'Tis true that Catherine Menzies. Mary Green and Katharine Spingler also tried to 
splash around on their pond, but they didn't yet concern our little friends. Anyway 
they were "conceited Sophs" (lucky ducks!) 

Katharine Morris, as squadron leader this year, was every bit as successful as 
Mabel. You just should have seen those little birds swim with and against the current 
together! No one who heard them certainly could blame them for singing at Class Day: 

We're the Freshman Class of '-J3 
And the very hest class are we. 


Three months later found them truly beginning to sprout graceful wings — and they 
had many pairs. Helen Little, Katharine Martin, Virginia Lay, Elizabeth Wood, Willie 
Skinner, Virginia Barker, Grace Duncan — such a fiery little duck (that static again! ) — 
Katharine Johnson and Mary Stark paddled over to that same little pond. Martha 
Everett, that year's director, helped make the flock a real success. The Seniors gave 
them a daring vaudeville one night, and as a return gala affair these enterprising little 
swimmers treated them to a real circus. 

But after mid-year's they became "conditioned Juniors" and were enrolled under 
Catherine Menzies's wing. She had already won over Ariel Close, Mary Green, Ellen 
Melick. Penton Yellott, Betty Fell, Betty Ragland, Whitney Holt and Katherine Spingler 
as full-fledged Juniors. Prom then on everything became centered around the far-distant 
and dream-spun Junior-Senior banquet. And then, too, these promoted fledglings were 
allowed to sit under their own rock to think and study — not forced to be herded to- 
gether under the sharp eyes of any sharp-billed duck. 

And then, at last, came the banquet, in anticipation of which they had paddled many 
a weary mile and had sharpened their hills considerably. No! They didn't eat cor\v 
bread cast to them at that meal! And they didn't dive to the bottom to pick up 
crumbs as formerly was the state becoming such fowls. They ate in a splendid nearby 
coop which is still called the Sir Wajter. No wonder it was record-breaking. 

And then — commencement was again upon them. As you watched them salute the 
sun class-day morning, and make the daisy chain you could obtain glimpses of very real 
sleek, white feathers on their skins. They were getting there. The next day was 
very odd, the rain ran and the sun shone at intervals — the Seniors would soon be gone 
— BUT they would soon All their nests. 

Before they could flap their wings twice they really were Seniors — even as you will 
be some day, my dears. And this time chaperoning and teaching Sunday school, and 
Dummelow and Sihelling, and the utilities of coal, and social control, and Metternich, 
and Don Rodrique, were pushing upstarts who tried to be admitted to the fold of 
Catherine Menzies's charges. Then came the Hallowe'en Party, in which Katherine 
Johnson showed the story of their growth. Miss Davis next distinguished herself and 
the flock by the Nativity Play and the "Bracehridge Hall" pantomime at Christmas. 
They even had a boar's head in their stockings. Santa Claus gave it to them because 
ducklings like them as you do dolls and drums. And once more they proved their 
love of the early morning hours by greeting the world at four o'clock in a foul chorus 
of carols. 

Every one was so good to those frolicking ducks. The Stones (Mr. Stone, you know, 
who is their patient adviser) gave them a party. Miss Morgan and Miss Turner feted 
them. The Ways decorated in purple and laveuder in their honor. The Tuckers had a 
businesslike auction party for them. Miss Lee and Miss Cobb unceasingly nourished 
and mothered them. 

Then came spring holidays with two extra days' vacation for them. Then came 
Easter with corsages and new feathers to preen. Then came May. 

The Juniors gave them a party in that month — a splendid banquet. And though there are 
those who may doubt it. it is none the less true that they gave them even a better one 
than they themselves had given the other Seniors the year before. 

And then came commencement. Some day, little ducklings, you may know what it 
means to leave the kind, sheltering pond you love. Then you will understand that 
although this season was one of excitement and thrills of the unknown for the little 
ducks, it was also one of intense sadness and helplessness. But did I say ducklings? 
Indeed they were no more that. At last after years of playing and working, and 
laughing and grieving — of living together — those twenty-five birds who emerged from 
the test had been strengthened and ennobled and uplifted by the warm arms and 
exalted skies of their country. At last they were beautiful, graceful, gleaming swans. 
And some day, dear children, you will be also! Good-night and sweet dreams to you 
all from Aunt Emmy. 

This is station 1-9-2-5 of St. Mary's School signing off. 


Last Will and Testament of The Class of '25 

We've asked every girl in the Senior Class, omitting none, to search her memory 
diligently and carefully, and to remember accurately and definitely, and then we forced 
each to yield to us the fruits of her labor. Each one has confessed what she cherished 
most in her life at St. Mary's and nearly all (we're sorry to say that some would not 
give up these hidden treasures ) have generously sacrificed these life-savers or what- 
not to the future happiness of the class of '26. We hope this generosity will be appre- 
ciated and we trust that the new owners will cherish these touching gifts as dearly 
as their former possessors. 

Catherine Menzines tried to tell us that she had nothing to leave to any one, hut we 
know better, so Article No. I reads thus: 

Article I. I. Catherine Menzies. do bequeath to my successor, the president of the 
class of '26. my generous disposition and untiring energy in helping others. 

And Cat claimed she had nothing to give! If the president of the new Senior Class 
makes good use of this gift, we foresee great things for St. Mary's. 

But alas! All are not like the first. Katharine Martin admitted that she cherished 
a picture most of all. No. 'tis not scenery, nor animals, nor relations! This she refused 
to give away, but according to 

Art. 2. I. Katharine Martin, do bequeath to Sally Leinster, a gilt-colored picture 
frame, to hang on the wall over her bed. May she have the good fortune to Jill this 
frame with a picture as ( Here, Katharine left a blank) as mine. 

Elizabeth Wood is one who appreciates her blessings, ami she immediately made her 

Art. III. I, Elizabeth Wood, bequeath to my dear friend. Annie Battle Miller, my 
attitude of thoughtful meditation and of calm, impressive silence, which so easily 
impresses my teachers with my knowledge. 

Ah! Annie Battle. We know not whether to congratulate you — or to send you 

Ariel thought and thought! What could she leave behind? 'Twas as weighty a question 
as that annual one, "What shall I give up for Lent — bran, or salt-herring?" But at last 
Ariel reached a noble decision: 

Art. IV. I, Ariel Close, will to the class of '26 a pair of rubbers, to be found in the 
left-hand corner of the right-hand side of the top of the closet. (The rag to clean them 
with is in the bottom bureau drawer. ) 

With this gift, the Seniors need have no fear of the proverbial showers. 

E'mily Burgwyn had one unequaled asset and she valiantly passes it on. 

Art. V. I, Emily Burgwyn, do will to Mary Margaret Willis my knowledge of the past, 
the present, and the future of St. Mary's School. 

For Emily, there is no truth in the saying, "Ignorance is bliss." But she is, rather, 
a firm believer in "Knowledge is power." 

We thought we'd have no trouble in obtaining Edna Jones's contribution, and sure 
enough, this is what she presents: 

Art. VI. I. Edna Jones, do will and bequeath to Elizabeth I'lrich my unequaled 
ability to "pop" chewing gum. so that all the rest of the Seniors will be able to agree 
on ;ii least one subject; that is. "Resolved, That any one who pops chewing-gum ought 
to be drowned." 

Willie Skinner's generosity is unheard of! 

Art. VII. I, Willie Skinner, do will and bequeath to Margaret Bullitt my studious 
disposition and unconquerable spirit of determination, which may enable her to pass 
her Senior studies as well as I have done. 

Bobbie, we all know, has one priceless contribution. We, of the year gaze upon 
it only to sigh with envy. What is it? 

Airi'. VIII. I, Bobbie Green, do will and bequeath to the class of '26, my Bible N 
notebook, 1,237 pages in all with date, references, and comments complete. 

Ah, friends! As yet you do not know the value of this volume (second only to 
Dummelow itself) but using it as a guide, you may be guaranteed a monthly mark of 90. 

[ 68 ] 

{Catherine Morris, we all know, has many things to leave, but she nobly parts with 
this, her dearest possession. 

Art. IX. I, Katherine Morris, do will and bequeath to Cat Lyon, my "drag" with 
Madame Simbolatti, so that French and Spanish may prove to her the pleasure it has 
to me. 

Pris Little has one undeniable blessing which she passes on to the one to whom she 
thinks it will prove most useful. 

Art. X. I, Helen Little, do will to Katherine Hosmer my curls, and hope they 1 will 
be as becoming to her as they were to me. 

Art. XI. I. Kalista Hood, for the welfare of the rest of the class, do bequeath to 
Carrie Frances Herring my solemn outlook on life so that her musical laugh will be 
heard as infrequently as possible. 

Aut. XII. I, Anna Whaley Smith, do will and bequeath to Sylbert Pendleton my dig- 
nity and efficiency, to enable her to keep from being imposed upon by the other more 
determined Seniors. 

Katherine Johnson, poor dear, was driven most crazy this year with the Annual, 
and from her year of experience she contributes the following to her successor, the' 
editor of the 1926 Annual. 

Art. XIII. I, Katherine Johnson, do will and bequeath to my successor, three things, 

1. A prayer to be offered every Sunday night, beginning, "May the sun please shine 

2. A grindstone to sharpen her wits on, to enable her to think up the "something 
new" everybody always looks for in the annual. 

3. Last, but not least, a pale-shaded light to show people their picture under so that 
they will appear quite flattering and consequently, quite satisfactory. 

Betty Fell, too, has spent many an hour over the Annual. Getting ads is her spe- 
cialty. Thus she leaves behind a gift and a suggestion. 

Art. XIV. I, Betty Fell, do will and bequeath to my successor a treasure, held dear 
by me and by all of the school (especially on Sunday nights! namely, the key to the 
"Little Store." In sincere advice, I warn the future Ad-getter to wear a respectable 
tailored dress; and not to chew gum. else, she too (how I blush to remember it) may — 
when she enters the 5c & 10c store, be courteously asked, "Oh, are you looking for work?" 

Art. XV. I. Betty Ragland, do will to Grace Martin my ability to "bluff" Mr. Stone. 
He admires the persevering "guesser." 

Art. XVI. I. Ellen Melick, do will to Ruth-Loaring Clark, my theatrical ability, 
especially that due to my knowledge of Physical Culture and how to conduct a Model 
Gym Class. «*[ 

Art. XVII. I, Delia Saunders, do bequeath to the occupants of Room No. 254, Senior 
Hall, my wonder curtains with explicit directions as to how to hang them — the right 
curtain being at least two feet short. Careful manipulation and skilful explanation, 
however, make it appear highly artistic. 

Art. XVIII. We, the class of '25, do will and bequeath to the class of '26 the following: 

1. The blue cushions in the hall which we have enjoyed so much. 

2. A tin cup on a chain — no, not for collections — but for water from the cooler. 

3. Hints about each subject: 

(1) History N. Maintain impressive silence. You get credit for knowing somelhing. 

(2) English N. Study. Memorize. Pay attention. Result — you pass. 

(3) Bible N. Laugh when the teacher does. 

(4) Economics and Sociology. Learn all about your home town and Edenton and 


(5) Spanish and French. No hint holds good. You learn only by experience. 

4. Lastly, we bequeath all happiness and good luck. 

Thus, the "Last Will and Testament" of the class of '25 has drawn to a close. May 
these gifts prove blessings, the advice be heeded, and the year 1925-26 be prosperous 
and happy. 

[ G9] 

Time Will Tell 

It had rained all day. Did I say rained? 1 should have said, wept. Such sad, com- 
plaining tears and with such an unceasing downpour that it seemed as if the weather 
man were thus expressing in some degree his sympathy for me. And I needed it. You 
must admit that mine was a precarious position (Yes, Mr. Stone, I looked up this word)! 
It wasn't that I was financially embarrassed — I was downright broke. The life of an 
unsuccessful journalist has never been of the easiest, and so my position was a per- 
plexing one. Who has ever heard of a class prophet who has been without funds with 
which to bribe a crystal gazer to gaze upon each member of the class happily married; 
or a reporter to report in snappy headlines their prosperous futures; or a fortune teller 
to tell of their more probable failures? But to add to my woes, all my classmates 
had deserted me. Of course, theirs was a mistaken opinion of me since my obvious 
condition proved I had not absconded with the Stare Coach funds. But my problem 
remained! And the facts confronted me unrelentingly that some time before the close 
of the day, June 2, 1935, had passed, I had to collect a record of the occupation of 
each of my classmates, who would not write to me and for whose records I could not 
afford to pay. 

But my bitter meditations were sharply interrupted by the abrupt ring of the postman. 
The dear man actually had a letter for me — a fat letter — an immense letter. When in 
my excitement I finally tore the envelope and revealed the contents I felt exactly like 
Betty Ragland used to when she received a foreign stamped letter. From then on I 
have been a firm believer in fairies, in Santa Claus — that letter was our Class Round 
Robin which had reached me at last after ten years. My problem was solved! Eureka! 

On the top of the packet lay a note from Ellen. She was running true to form because 
although it was headed "Princeton." she had never been to see me. But let her tell 
her own story: "Life here as the wife of a hockey and track coach is very thrilling. 
In fact each of the dear boys is a thrill. You all have heard, haven't you, that my 
influence over Blank's charges has been publicly commended? They obey me like 
lambs about going to bed early and wearing their red flannels in winter." 

Perhaps one of our other classmates envies her. At any rate, the letter from the 
Countess Utoocancatch'em seemed vaguely to regret her palatial home when thinking 
of Wake Forest. Betty says, "air castles aren't the only ones that break." Perhaps I 
could feel sorrier for her and leave off my attitude of you-have-built-your-palace-and- 
must-stay-in-it if it weren't for her outrageous treatment of Delia. The letter from 
Chase City was a perfect wail: "Since Betty left me I haven't been able to get another 
dancing partner, and my dancing act in vaudeville has failed miserably. If any one 
has heard of any suitable person to take her place, please, please let me know. Otherwise 
I'll have to accept my permanent offer, number 25<?)" 

Another sad case is Whaley's. The poor girl bravely undertook to run some apple 
orchards after she graduated, you know, but now: "I ate so much of the fruit that 
1 had none for market. Accordingly, I filed my bankruptcy papers only the other day. 
But," she says with her old-time optimism, "they accomplished their purpose, for I am 
permanently thin, with a complexion more lasting than my 50c school girl variety." 

I turned with a sigh from these failures to some more cheerful cases— more bright, 
as it were. Grace Duncan's and Katherine Spingler's letters were of course the very 
things. They have both made their name and fame, and that of an enterprising young 
artist in New York. It is easy to understand how the latter is called a "Second Titian." 
Grace frankly says that she loves "the late hours and excitement of New York because 
together they have managed to keep me skinny." As for Katherine, she is one of the 
few successful members of our class. Profiting by her commuting experiences, she 
has established some rest-rooms between Raleigh and St. Mary's, and the day pupils 
did the rest. It was only the other day that she retired with her millions. 

Edna Jones also went to New York, as you probably already knew if you have seen 
any of the new statues of Pan which have attracted so much recent comment — oh yes, 
favorably, of course. And now she and her chewing gum beau have been married, for in- 
stead of a letter there was a circular wedding invitation from her. For your curiosity I 
will say that I have managed to find a nickel in order to answer that bill with the desired 
checkermint present. 


A letter from Lib Wood told me of Willie's sad plight. It seems that "she spent all 
her dowry money on dope, and now the poor girl has nothing with which to support her 
husband." I suppose the annual contribution of hose on Valentine's Day doesn't sup- 
port her — too bad! 

As for Lib herself, I had to look in Willie's letter for news. It is pitiful that such 
intimate friends should have such distressingly different endings to their careers. To 
quote Willie: "Lib has just received her third huge check for her job. She is paid, you 
know, to talk into an energy-producing machine. All she needs is some cute boys to 
keep her wound up and all her talk is at last made use of!" Lucky Lib! 

Pris is another who has made use of her talents: "My permanent wave shop is a 
ripp(l)ing success. On the side I have even achieved some fame as a minstrel end-man 
with my accent!" What more could one want? 

Whitney's opening sentence next aroused my apprehension. She had not taken 
advantage of the circus to pose as the fat lady. That she had missed her calling I was 
convinced. "Instead." she says, "I have reduced — can you imagine me thin?" Truth 
will out! I can't. "But." she goes on, "my series of reducing exercises are now justly 
famous — at least Miss Morgan has protested about the condition of the Senior Hall 

To read of Whitney without Kalista w r ould have been impossible, so I next picked up 
that clever lady's. With true Kalista-like wit, she said: "I have taken to aeroplanes 
as the quickest way to go the maximum distances with the minimum effort, some day 
I might drop in on you" — just so she spares the roof. She goes on. "My speed and 
success with the Senior biographies years ago encouraged me so that I'm publishing a 
series of volumes on each of the girls. So far I have written the first chapter of 
Barker's life and have every hope of completing all twenty-six books while I live." 
I wonder. 

Another one of the girls has gone into the publishing game, with more success than 
mine has been, or Kalista's promises to be. Katherine Johnson says in her refreshingly 
original manner, "Yes, Black Bath-Towels became a 'best seller," and I now am com- 
piling its sister volume of free verse, 'Pink Sv,gai'lumi}S\" I should have ventured the 
opinion that Katherine's calling was helping unoriginal damsels publish original an- 
nuals or answering letters of lovelorn lads and lassies. 

On the other hand Mary Stark has made practical application of her editing knowl- 
edge. She says she goes from school to school, remodeling the publications. Fi'om 
another source I have it that they are as improved by her advice as the Muse was,. 
Mary also says that she insists that the first editorial of the year be preached against 
the evils of train acquintanceships. I should like to prompt Mary about — but, never 

Mary-Wood is the only of our girls to settle down and make a real home. She would. 
But even our Mary-Wood first had a fling in another direction. She says, "My attempt 
at inventing mousetraps was unsuccessful. The traps were allright, but the mice 
must have all received an education from the trained one in our old room — they are 
trained to keep away from me and mine." 

Ariel wrote: "I am back at St. Mary's taking Miss Shapcott's place. And, my dears," 
she added coyly, "I am now a permanent fixture on the St. Mary's vaudeville stage. 
In fact, I'm very versatile, everything from chorus girl to cowboys and medicine women 
comes in my repertoire. I indeed am indebted to Stage Coach benefits." 

Katherine Morris is also working at Alma Mater. The "most popular' 'one's life work 
seems to be rescuing athletic damsels and clothing them properly in underwear for 
gymnasium! She must know her business with all her practice as a student job. 

Bobby also has profited by her school experiences. She has recently published her 
Bible N notes. The first five volumes have already appeared and the waiting- public 
will soon receive the sixth and seventh. Poor Bobby! Her Quaker conscience has put 
her in a perplexing position and she has asked for advice. "My pupils in Bible N| 
should of course know everything about the course that I can teach them; and yet 
it would not be right to appear sacrilegious before them. Shall I tell them who knows 
the author of Hebrews?" 

Mr. Way should be flattered because a second Senior has made use of his course. 
Katherine Martin said, "My notes have helped my minister husband inestimably. All 
this I owe to our rector. The course really was Worth it." 

[71 ] 

Virginia Barker's letter came next. She is another of our class successes. Virginia 
had so cultivated the gentle art of fainting that she finally discovered a cure — which 
she immediately patented. "But the St. Mary's girls," she wailed, "are so unappreciative. 
and all those who aspire to faint in Chapel or in the dining room recently sued me." 

Virginia Lay's gleanings from the Infirmary were of a different character. You of 
course know she has become an interior decorator. But. perhaps, you haven't heard 
the gossip current about the plans which secured her fame. "The room, a plan for a 
hospital, had typical cracks (guaranteed strictly accurate) on the ceiling with which to 
while away the patient's time; vivid marine scenes of fleets and torpedoes were painted 
on the walls." So appropriate and so original, don't you think? 

Our other Infirmary standby, Cat Menzies, of course returned there after she had 
been in training. "But," she said, "I'm afraid my job isn't very secure. Miss Alex 
complains of my laxity. I must admit that I did give a starved girl a half cup of tea 
on her fifth day's stay with us." Poor Cat! I suppose there is no choice left her 
but to marry one of the many and try a half a cup of lea on him. 

Jackie's is another sad case. I shudder when I think what a part we Seniors have 
had in her downfall. "Instead of being a nurse, as I aspire to be, I am being nursed," 
she said. The poor girl hasn't left the voice sanatorium where our impositions upon 
her voice sent her. Some day I hope she can sing "Gloria Pokes" with her former 

If it were only one girl whom working for us has ruined it wouldn't be so bad, but 
Julia is in the same place as Jackie, another of our victims upon the altar of successful 
entertainments. Her pathetic little fingers haven't yet grown out after we worked 
them to the bone on the piano. 

I had put off Emily's letter until last, when I had the rest of the afternoon before 
me. And so imagine my surprise and disappointment (to say nothing of grief) when 
I found it to be from Mrs. Burgwyn instead. List to the sad news: "My daughter was 
taken to a sanitorium last week. Hers is a strange disease — her head, already crammed 
with facts, became supersaturated and burst! But the art of a Mason has been able 
to cement it together again, and she must stay in a cast all the rest of her life." 

As this last sad letter dropped from my hands the tears began to trail down hiy 
cheeks. It wasn't only for Emily that I w r ept, but for all the unhappy failures of our 
"most-promising-of-all" class. And as I sobbed the weather harmoniously continued its 
monotonous weeping, this time in sympathy for every one — not me alone. But I felt 
less alone after this bond. Oh, don't let me be so blue again. Send out another Round 
Robin — do!

While There's Life 

The first milestone is somehow passed, 
We don't know how, by Gosh, 

But now the deed is done at last, 
And we're no longer Frosh. 

Tail' Juniors stroll along the mail 
Toward Senior year, and fame, 

What care they if they have a load? 
They'll get there just the same. 

As for the Senior Class — My Dear ! 

They're on the heights, you know, 
They're dashing there or rushing here, 

They're always on the go. 

But we have lots to compensate 

Our woes, however blue. 
And you'll see yet, we'll Graduate

had some notion about liis "Heritage" being that of a "Freeman" I having no 

female to be a "Drane" on him. He was a grand "Ball" player and was a "Work- 
man" in a "Flint" null besides, lint lie drank considerable. One day be bought 
a new-fangled machine, a "Bashford," and lie used to "Parker" in front of his 
house like a million dollars. Ilis next door neighbor became interested. One 
"Rainy" "May" morning "Betty Hose" early and donned a frock of many 
"Hughes. " It soon cleared off, however, ami she sat on her porch. Her hero ap- 
proached. "'Howell' are youl" he asked. "Well's can he expected," she replied, and 
began to "Toye" with her hat. Of course he asked her to ride ami they got in 
the "Bashford" and be tried to "Tucker" in nice and off they went. She was a 
"Jolly" little somebody and talked faster'n a "Gatling" gun. lie began to "Harden" 
to her chatter and soon began to like it. He waxed poetic. "You're like a little 
bee buzzing — or a 'Busbee'," be said. She blushed. She talked cute and said she 
wanted to go to a "Barber," ami asked in childlike faith. "Kennedy' my hair red ?" 
'Course be told her it was beautiful already, ami soon ('lipid's darts were "Soars" 
in his heart. "Are yen 'Cole'?" he asked. She was — but soon she wasn't. He 
waxed confidential. "Somehow 1 like you," he finally said. "I 'Sawyer' on the 
porch and as I always 'Acton' impulse, I asked you to ride. Xow I believe I'm 
in 'Love' with yen and know I'm a reformed gentleman. May the 'Barbee' far 
from me hereafter."

By Ellen Graves, E. A. P. 

Winning Story m Story Contest Between Sigwio. Lambdas and E. A. P's, 

"Coward! " 

It seemed that the words came from all sides, echoing and rehounding. The evening 
hreeze took it up and magnified it. The sleepy birds seemed to chirp it drowsily — the 
very beauty of the fiery sunset seemed to hurl it tauntingly at that lonely figure 
stretched out in the tall grass. 

In reality all was peaceful and quiet there on the mountain top. Nature itself was 
awed into a breathless silence by the glory of the western sky. Something of its 
intensive beauty penetrated even the dulled senses of the inert figure, imparting some 
poignant message to his numbed brain, for, suddenly, a quiver ran through his tired 
body, and he slowly raised his head. 

Before him. two hundred feet below, lay a brooding valley — small, quiet, beautiful — 
and through the notch made by two mountain peaks directly beyond it burned the most 
vivid sunset he had ever seen. It was of a thousand unnamed hues, all brilliant, fierce, 
fearsome; yet at the same time unutterably, gloriously beautiful. Startling in its intensity, 
this gigantic flame lashed itself to the zenith of color; then, while the lone watcher was 
still held in the thrall of its perfection, it was gone. The dull gray-blue of night settled 
over the twin peaks, and the world was hushed to rest. 

The man, who had unconsciously risen to a kneeling position during the passing of 
the sunset, fell back to earth again, drearily. 


He spoke aloud, and in his voice was the bitterness of despair. 

"Happiness! It's just like that sunset. A glorious thing, lasting only long enough to 
impress with the beauty of its passing. Happiness! " 

He got to his feet with an abrupt movement and, thrusting his hands deep into the 
pockets of his mackintosh, he turned toward the north, and began to stride rapidly 
through the autumn dusk toward what he now called home. 

"Coward," he reflected bitterly. Vehemently he condemned himself, "Yes coward!" 

His stride quickened, as night was falling rapidly, and. as he went, his thoughts 
were a turmoil of self-condemnation, self-defense, and the negative force of an indif- 
ference; which he could not bring himself to feel. 

"Coward," he told himself again, harshly. "Go back and do the right thing, atone 
for it, make it right in the sight of man if not in the sight of God." Then he laughed, 
hollowly, "God? Alan Law 7 , you soft fool! As though there were a God! It was the old 
days when things came easy and happiness seemed assured that you believed in God. 
You, speaking of God! You, whose life has been a perfect hell for four years. It is 
some fiend that directs your life, not God; some such devil as must have painted that 
sunset back there. Horrible, beautiful! God? Ha!" Again he laughed shortly and 
resumed his former thought. To go back, to face it all— there could be no disadvantages 
to her in going hack, and as for Adele, that dream was over. To go back — 

He stopped suddenly and crouched low in the tall weeds, alert to every sound, every 
movement, for he was Hearing his crude dwelling-place and he had heard a sound, an uu- 
mistakeable crackling of the autumn leaves and branches. Maybe they had discovered 
his presence here on the mountain top, maybe they had come for him! An instinctive 


caution told him to beware. He stood listening for a moment; then, hearing no further 
sound. lie crept steathily toward the back of his shack. There, at the edge of the clear- 
ing, the stone sides of a well rose directly in front of him. He raised himself until 
his eyes came above the topmost stone. He searched for a moment in the gathering 
mist, then his set features relaxed, and he smiled, for he heard a childish sigh, and a 
plaintive voice said: 

"Oh dear! I do wish Daddy would come home. I can't lift this heavy old pail." 

And there, about half-way between the well and the cabin, was the object of his after- 
noon's musings. A tiny girl of eight pushed her dark, clustering curls back from a 
puzzled forehead, and sighed again. Then she sat down on a huge rock with the 
too-heavy pail of water beside her, and waited impatiently for "Daddy." She paddled her 
bare toes in the water that she had spilled in her attempt to carry the bucket, and 
puckered her tiny red lips in a half-recognizable whistle. At this Alan Law laughed 
aloud, strode around the well and, going to her, lifted her high on his shoulder. She 
put clinging arms around his neck and whispered into his ear, "Daddy, why didn't you 
come home? You were so late. The big sun beat you to it; he got home before you did." 

Then, forgetting the bucket of water which must be carried to the cabin, she said, 
coaxin.iily, "Sit down here. Daddy, and let's listen to the frogs talk " 

He, unmindful of the evening's duties, sat down on the big stone and held the tot 
close, burying nis face in the soft duskiness of her curls. For an unusually long time 
she was silent; then she spoke, her eyes fixed on the uncertain sky-line. 

"Daddy." she said pensively, "Before you came I was up at the edge of the hill. 
and I saw the sun go to bed. Daddy, he made all the white clouds red and purple and 
gold, and some of them were black. Why did he do that Daddy? You always put me 
to bed, and tuck me in all comfy, but who puts the sun to bed Daddy?" 

Alan Law pressed her closer and did not speak at once. He had often wondered what 
he would answer when his little girl asked some question like this, and now he was at 
a loss. He recalled his bitter words spoken as he was walking home: "Some such devil 
as painted that sunset — God?" And he remembered the harsh irony of his laugh which 
was echoed in his embittered soul. He opened his mouth to tell her of this; then he 
checked himself. She wouldn't understand; it would only frighten her. Why not let 
her believe that there was a God who "put the sun to bed." She would some day see 
the absurdity of the thing for herself; but while she was such a child why not let her 
believe the tale? It was a beautiful fable, a story for children indeed! 

And so he told her. Told her the beautiful story from the beginning, as he had be- 
lieved it, long ago. 

"And so," he included, "It is Jesus who puts the sun to bed, and it is Jesus who 
wakes up the white moon that is going to rise pretty soon. Do you see, little sweetheart?" 

"What a lovely story, Daddy! Tell me some more." 

"Not now, Chicken. Look how dark it is, and we haven't even built a fire yet. Come, 
we must get to work." 

He picked up (he forgotten pail of water, and, perching the little girl high on his 
shoulder, he went into the. little cabin. 

While he prepared the evening meal Dana sat before the big fireplace and mused on 
the story that her Daddy had told her. She sat and watched a replica of the evening's 
sunset in the glowing flames, while Alan, with evident efficiency, made biscuits and 
lay the crude, hand-made table which stood in the center of the little cabin. As he 
passed busily between the fireplace and his improvised cooking table, he noted "that 
little Dana was strangely silent. She sat on a low stool, with her chin in her cupped 
hands, staring at the fire — not dreamily, but earnestly, insistently, as though she was 

L 113 j 

trying to fathom its depths. She did not even change her attitude when the appetizing 
odor of sizzling bacon began to permeate the room and even to reach outside, tor pres- 
ently there came a scratching at the door. Alan opened it to admit a huge collie, black 
and golden brown. He was a beautiful dog, with deep, knowing eyes, and an uncanny 
understanding. He sniffed the air appreciatively, and then, knowing that Alan would 
presently feed him, he walked slowly over to where Dana sat, not moving before the fire. 
He stood, quietly, for a moment, then he licked her tiny brown hand. She smiled, then 
looking into the flames, smoothed his head in the way he loved, "Dear Flurr," she 
said softly. Then presently she spoke to Alan, with her eyes still fixed on the flames. 


"Yes, sweet?" 

"Daddy, when we went down to the store this morning to get flour and bacon and 
sugar and things, while you talked to the store-man, I played with three little girls 
there. One of 'em said that her mother was the nicest and beautifullest lady in the 
world, and another said that her mother used to be nice and beautiful too, but now she 
was gone a long, long way off. She said her mother was dead, and she cried. What 
does 'dead' mean. Daddy, and who is 'Mother?' " 

Alan, who had been dreading this very question for a long time, answered. 

"Come, Dana, chick, we must eat our supper now, then I will tell you all about it. 
Look at Flurr, he is so hungry. My little girl is tired tonight. What have you done all 
this long afternoon that I've been away?" 

"I've been awful busy, Daddy mine. I finished our little house today, and I'm so tired 
from carrying little sticks all afternoon. I'll show you the little house in the morning. 
I'm so hungry, Daddy, as hungry as Flurr is." 

"Come, then, chicken"; and he lifted her to the little high stool beside the table. 

The simple meal was eaten in silence. Then, while Alan washed the dishes, Dana 
stood by with a big towel in which she constantly got entangled, and begged to be 
allowed to help. 

"No, dear, not tonight," said Alan gently. "You get all ready for bed, and then I'll 
tell you another story before I tuck you in." 

"Oh goody! All right, Daddy. I'll feed Flurr first though. Ooo-look at him, Daddy! 
He is so hungry. He must have worked hard today, too. Here, Flurr!" 

Then, while Alan finished setting the cabin in order, she exchanged her little blue 
gingham dress for the outing pajamas that her Daddy had bought for her at the store 
five miles down the mountain. Today, for the first time in many weeks, Alan had let 
her go with him, and, although she rode on his shoulder most of the distance, she was 
now a very tired little girl. She insisted, however, that she hear the story before she 
go to bed. 

Presently Alan came over to the fire, pulled up the only big chair that the cabin 
boasted, and set her on his knee. She cuddled close in the hollow of his arm. She loved 
the rough touch of his unironed shirt, and loved to feel his big hard hand in her curls- 
loved to hear his heart beat. She settled herself in his arms, and waited until Flurr 
had stretched himself at full length at their feet, then she sighed, a little quivering sigh, 
and said, "Now, Daddy." 

"Once upon a time, sweet," began Alan in a low, strangely soft voice, "There lived 
in a big city, a lovely lady. She lived in a nice big house, and never had to do a thing 
she didn't want to. Her name was Adele. Isn't that a pretty name, Dana? 

"Well, this beautiful lady, Adele, had a husband. Her husband, Danie, was a man who 
loved her, and who lived in the nice house with her, and tried to make her happy. He 
worked every day so that he could buy her more lovely dresses and get more maids to 


work for her. You see Adele was very selfish, Dana, and didn't want to do anything 
but just sit and look beautiful for the people that came to call, and to go to lovely places. 

"Then, one day, she had a little baby girl. Yes, Danie, a tiny baby girl with big 
brown eyes like the lovely lady's, and with soft dark curls like Adele's, too. When 
the baby got old enough to talk she called Adele 'Mother,' and wanted to be with her 
all the time ; but Adele didn't like the little girl very well, and she didn't want to 
bother with her. So she got a nurse to take care of the baby. The nurses's name was 
Mary, chick, and she was a nice nurse. She loved the poor little baby, and tried to take 
the place of her mother. Well, they lived this way a long time, for four years, and then 
one day the little girl's father talked to Adele a long time. Adele began to cry, and 
she seemed to be begging for something. The man said, 'No, darling, I cannot do it. 
Not even for you whom I love better than all the world.' And then Adele got very angry, 
and stopped crying. She talked very loudly to him, and then she came out of the room 
and started upstairs. Halfway up she stopped, and turned around and said to the man, 
in a dreadfully mean voice, Danie, 

" 'Be a coward if you like, but if you cannot even risk that for my pleasure, then I shall 
go tomorrow. It will not be difficult to find those that would risk anything for me. 
This is my last word unless you bring me what I ask tonight.' 

"Then she went up to her room, and the man took his hat and coat and went out into 
the cold. He walked a long way, Dana, and wondered what he was going to do. You 
see the lady had asked him for a lot of money, and she wouldn't tell him what she 
wanted it for. She just said that if he didn't give it to her at once she would go away 
forever. Now, the man didn't have that much money, all he had was a little, and the 
only way he could get it was to steal it." 

Dana, who had been listening w r ith rapt attention, stirred at this, and interrupted, 

"But Daddy, you told me once that it was wrong to steal and he was a good man 
wasn't he Daddy? Oh, please make him a good man, Daddy." 

Alan pressed her closer, and was glad that she could not see his face. 

"Well, Danie, he knew that it was wrong to steal, but Adele wanted the money, and 
he loved her so. He loved her too much to let her go away forever. What could he 
do, Dana?" 

"But Daddy," objected Dana, "I don't think the lady deserved to have the money 
anyway. I don't think she deserved to have such a nice husband. Do you. Daddy?" 

"Why — why — I don't know, Dana, but you see he wasn't good after all, because he 
did steal the money for her." Alan could not bring himself to tell her that in the act 
the man had killed another man, one who had been his friend. He could not bring him- 
self to say the words. That wound was not yet healed. He continued: 

"She took it and ran away, way, far away to another land. She didn't like the little 
girl baby, so she left her with the man." 

"Pretty soon the people found out that he had stolen the money, and they went to get 
him and put him in prison." 

"What is 'prison' Daddy " questioned Dana. 

"Prison, Dana, is a place where they put bad people. They lock them up and never 
let them get out." 

"Ooo — did they get him, Daddy?" 

"No, sweet he took his little girl and ran away where they couldn't find him. They 
hid in the mountains. They lived all alone on a mountain top in a little cabin." 

"Why — that's just like we do; was their house like ours, and did they have a dog 
like Flurr?" 


"Why — er — yes, their house was like ours, and I believe they hart a dog like Flurr. 
They lived there for a long time, for four years, and the little girl grew up to be a young 
lady, like you, my Dana, and the man got to be brown and hard like I am. The little girl 
had to begin to go to school, and there was no school up on the mountain top. Her 
Daddy decided that he must go into a city where she could go to school, so she'd be 
a lovely lady." 

"Rut if he went to a city," interrupted Dana, "Wouldn't the people find him and lock 
him up forever 'an ever?" 

"Yes, dear, that was just the trouble. And if they locked him up, what would become 
of the little girl?" 

"But Daddy, maybe the mean lady would come back and love the little girl and not 
be mean any more." 

Alan started, and made a convulsive movement with his foot that provoked a grunt 
from Flurr. "Ah, no, sweetheart. Adele would never relent" — His voice died away, 
and he seemed lost in thought until Dana turned her head and looked up at him. 

"Go on Daddy," she prompted, "What did he do?" 

"I don't know, sweet, what could he do? You think of something for him to do." 

"Oh dear," sighed Dana, "I don't know, Daddy, you think of something." And the 
tired little girl closed her eyes. 

Alan did nut ttdl her that he had thought of scarcely anything else for the last week. 
Instead he said, "Come, sweet you must hop into your lied. Tell Flurr good-night." 

So Dana placed an uncertain kiss on the smooth softness of Flurr's head, and went to 
her Daddy to be lifted to her bunk. 

"Good night, Daddy." 

"Good night, little sweetheart." 

Then Alan extinguished the lantern that had burned on the table, and sat down in 
front of the glowing fire. After a space of perhaps, rive minutes, he heard a small 
voice from the bunk behind him. 


"Yes, dear?" 

"Remember the story you told me about Jesus tonight?" 

"Yes, dear; I remember." 

"Well, Daddy, you said that He could do anything. Do you s'pose if I asked Him 
to do something He'd do it?" 

"Why — I don't know, Dannie. You might ask Him." 

"All right, Daddy." Then after a moment the soft voice continued. 

"Jesus, find a way for the man to get his little girl to school in the city, and please 
don't let those people lock him up forever an' ever." Then silence. 

Alan gripped the arms of his chair until his knuckles whitened, then slowly he 
relaxed, and sat in deep thought before the fire until Flurr, scratching at the door to get 
out, aroused him. Before he crawled between the rough blankets in the bunk directly 
below that which held the form of his sleeping little girl, he stepped outside into the 
beautiful autumn night. As he stood there, he felt Flurr's nose against his knee. He 
spoke without looking at the dog, "Well, Flurr, Danie prayed that the man in the story 
might know what to do, and — he has decided." 

Mother Superior looked at the envelope which the uniformed messenger had brought 
her. The address was in a cramped, weak handwriting, as of some one who had not 
written for many years. It read: 


Tn Mother Superior, 

Convent of Saint Therese, 
Chicago, III, 

"Were you to wait for an answer"? She asked of the hesitant messenger. 
"Yes mum, Mother," he gulped. She quickly tore open the letter. It read: 

Dear Mother Superior.: 

Mother. I will not take up your time with my life story. Suffice to say that years 
ago I committed a crime — a crime punishahle with death. My wife deserted me in ray 
hour of need, and left our little daughter to my care. For the child's sake, and, truth- 
fully, for my own I ran away. We have heen in hiding in the Maine mountains for four 
years. Dana is eight years old, and she must be taught. I have come to Chicago to 
commend her to your care, and to give myself up. Enclosed is all the money I possess. 
It is for Dana's care. Keep her in your convent until she is old enough to know the 
world. I owe more to her than you can know. She has brought me back to God. For 
His sake, Mother, keep her, teach her, guard her, treat her as your own. Remember 
that she has seen only a very few people, and knows comparatively nothing. She is 
innocent, sweet, and loving. Guard her and care for her, Mother. Never let her know 
that her father was a criminal. She knows nothing of evil. Say that I have gone to 
a far land, as indeed I shall have, and tell her that she will see me again some day, and 
that she is to stay with you until then. I have three more months of life. My child's 
name is Dana Law. Care for her, Mother, and may God's blessings be upon her, and 
upon you. Alan Law. 

"But where is the little girl, the little Dana Law," she asked the messenger, un- 
ashamed of the mist in her eyes. 

"Out in the carriage that he sent us in. mum — I mean. Mother. He said not to bring 
her in till you'd read the letter. Said maybe you wouldn't want her. Mother." 

"The poor little dear, out in that carriage all of this time. She is probably frightened 
half to death. Go quickly and bring her in. We love her — of course we want her." 

Slowly Alan Law walked down a long, narrow corridor, seemingly interminable, be- 
tween gray stone walls. At last his conductor stopped and inserted a key into a well- 
oiled lock. A barred door swung silently open. Alan's handcuffs were removed, and 
he walked into the center of the little, chill room, his head still high. Behind him 
softly, but decidedly, unmistakably, a lock clicked.

On Saturday, October 4, the new girls were chosen for the Athletic Associa- 
tions. The grove was a mass of happy, excited girls. The Mus in light blue and 
white were at the postoffice door yelling for their now members as they received 
their invitations. The new Sigmas joined the group of dazzling red and gave 
a snake djance around the grove. 

After dinner the first basketball game of the season was played between the 
old Sigmas and Mus.. This game is always the most enjoyable one of the year 
because since so few of the girls belonging to teams have returned it is very amusing 
to see old girls who have never played before playing jumping center, or aiming 
for a basket into which they have never been known to throw a goal. .But the new- 
girls always enjoy it and this, the sportsmanship, was a thing to be remembered. 
The Mus won by a score of 25-16 and, besides, the Sigmas being good losers, the 
Mus were the best of winners. Everybody began that night to look forward to 
the many exciting games that were to follow. 

The first games to count towards the banner were played on November S. The 
first team of the Sigmas played the Mu first team and the Sigmas won by a score 
of 26-27. The teams were evenly matched and the Sigmas had to fight for their 
victory. When the game was three-fourths over the Sigma jumping center was 
taken out of the game and, since the Sigmas had no "subs" for this position, 
Erma Williams, who did not belong to any team, was put in as jump center. 
Special stress should be laid upon her excellent playing, as she helped her team 
to victory. 

The third teams also played that night, and again luck was with the Sigmas 
as they won by a score of 30-13. The Mus were the best of losers, saying that they 
would win next time, which they did on November 22, when the second teams 
played their first game. The score was 41-31 in favor of the Mus. They should 
be complimented on their splendid passwork. The Sigmas were not to be outdone, 
so they gave a yell for the Mus and gave a snake dance around the Gym. 

So far the sportsmanship has been better than ever before and we hope that 
it will continue so. 

On November 29, the first teams of both associations again played a hard- 
fought game, which resulted in a score of 42-14 in favor of the Sigmas. The Mus 
showed the best of sportsmanship and should be congratulated on their good playing, 
especially since one of their forwards was unable to play. The third teams also 
played on the same night and the Sigmas were again victorious, the score being 
25-19. The Sigmas were wild with excitement since this made two third-team 
games that they bad won, thereby giving them ten points towards the banner. 

The second teams played again on December 6. This was the most exciting game 
of the season. I n the first half the score was 15-8 in favor of the Mus. The Sigmas 
had almost given up hope until they substituted Margaret Godfrey as forward; 
then they wen- able to hold the Mus down. Thigpon substituted for Weaver and 
she played a beautiful game. When the whistle blew at the close of the game 
ever}' one was tense with excitement; no one was sure who had won. For the 
first time in a number of years the score was a tie, 2S-2S. It was so unusual that 
the girls hardly knew how to take it, but each side, rejoiced that they hadn't been 
beaten and began looking forward to the game after Christmas that would deter- 
mine the winner of the second teams. 


December 13 is a very pleasant memory for the Sigmas, since on that date 
the last first-team game was played. The last three out of five first-team games 
counting thirty points towards the banner, and the Sigmas having already won two 
of the games, yelled with all their might when they heard the score of the last 
game, 3'4-26, in favor of the Sigmas! But, as always, the Mus kept smiling and 
showing the good sportsmanship that is characteristic of them. 

On January 26 the second teams of both societies played each other for the 
third time. The previous scores had been 26-16 in favor of the Mus and 28-28. 
This made it necessary to play again and this, the third game, resulted in a score 
of 26-16 in favor of the Sigmas.. So the total score for all three games was a tie. 
This tie will be played off as soon as possible, and the winning team will receive 
20 points towards the final trophy. 

The final basketball game was played on March 2, and the enthusiasm of both 
societies reached its height. The Sigmas were again victorious by a score of 36-16, 
and this game gave the Sigmas 20 points toward the trophy. This game closed 
the basketball season and made a total of 60 points for the Sigmas towards the final 
trophy. During all the games the spirit and sportsmanship have been of the best 
and both societies should be congratulated on their clear, "above-board" methods. 

Katharine Morris — Sigma President 

"Who's our president? Can you guess?" That's the yell that carries the Sigmas 
to victory. And it's Katherine's pep, Katherine's sportsmanship which has led 
them for two years. And she is an ornamental president, but never merely that. 
She has earned her share of points toward the banner. She has inspired the Sigmas 
to new life at the most hopeless moments. She has put heart and soul into the 
Sigmas. If the Sigma colors weren't red, we'd say she is true, blue all the way 
through — and quite the best sport ever known. 

Louise Scott — Mary Davis, Mu Presidents 

The Mus lost an able president when "Scottie" left, but no one was more fitted 
to take her place than Mary Davis. "Scottie" was a generous winner and a good: 
loser — so is Mary. While "Scottie" is the kind of guard you like to have on your 
own side, Mary is the kind of forward that makes you gasp with wonder at light- 
ness, swiftness and fleetness.. They're both mighty fine Mus.

While Betty Green is the "Daintiest" 

Of all Die maids hereabout. 
Mary Davis is quite the "Best Looking,' 

And she has unfathomable eyes, 
No one can be "Brilliant as Bullitt," 

However hard she tries. 
K. Johnson is "Original," 

Skinner always "Attracts," 
From Bettie Fell's "Efficiency," 

No petty flaw detracts. 
While "Influential" Ellen gently 

Leads our noblest deeds. 
So each of these, in her own sphere, 
In something worthwhile, leads.

A Sunset Fantasy 

Winning Poem in Inter-Society Contest 

There is an old woman who sits in the moon 

And knits every sunset cloud; 
And the needles she plies are the rays of the sun, 

And as dusk draws near, she says aloud : 
"I'll get them done — I'll get them done." 

The misty rain is her fleecy wool, 

And she tints her clouds every hue 
With the colors she draws from the setting sun's cup; 

And she says, as she nods to me and you: 
"I'll finish them up — I'll finish them up." 

But she never does get them quite all done, 

But, tired, lets her needles fall, 
And dozes off and sleeps 'till dawn, 

And, her gay-tinted clouds are spread witli a pall — 
For the sun is gone — the sun is gone.

It's all the Eaull of their trip 

Across the oce'an so deep. 
If only they'd stayed at home 

We'd have no cause to weep. 

Bui no, they both set sail 

On a calm and warm June day, 

Waving good-bye to this land of ours, 
Both so happy and gay. 

Now — you'd never knew they arc the same 
Who unpretentious, left that day, 

Miss Morgan says Miss Turner was 

All right till Count Blank came her way. 

He, with a courtly how, 

Swept low before her smile, 
And entertained her royally 

In courtly, princely style. 

He — of course on urgent cause, 

Happened along wherever they were, 

Just stopping by till they moved on, 
With eyes always cu her. 

You wonder Miss Morgan wasn't jealous? 

Ah — Miss Turner' 11 tell you whv . 
One day— an educated Duke 

Managed to catch her eye. 

He quite completely caught her eye 

Nor stopped till he'd her heart us well, 

They conversed in Latin, French, and Greek, 
So what they said — none can tell! 

No wonder now we're at a loss, 

For 'tis not like of yore. 
'Tis always Miss Morgan or Miss Turner 

Who greet the ''Special Boy" at the door. 

Miss Morgan got three and a wire last week 
But Miss Turner's not far behind. 

And wherever she. turns she leaves the scent 
Of perfume of some foreign kind. 

And their clothes, my dear. 

They're the talk of the school, 
Such striking — bold Parisienne gowns, 

For us they're quite against the rule! 

Why, what's that noise now I hear? 

Ah, 'tis the rising belli 
I've just been dreaming all night long, 

And truly — it's just as well I

Blessings on thee, little dear, 
Little girl of yesteryear! 
With thy high-piled powdered hair. 
And hidden knees, so far from bare; 

With thy hoop-skirts flowing 'round.

You are sweet — but still we say. 
We are glad we live today.

The town clock sounded the hour. Slie drew her coat about her. grasped her bundle more tightly 
and pared nervously back and forth. Her hour had come. Already she could see the consequences. 
Her brow grew cold, her pulse beat faintly. Then with new zeal she walked briskjy. Every sound 
spurred her on. Never had a block seemed so long. Her face was severely stern, her jaw indicative 
of her grim determination. Her shrewd gray eyes looked searchingly ahead. She quickened her pace, 
then slowed down unconcernedly. "There are two ways of looking at things" (especially if you're cross- 
eyed), she surmised. Such thoughts calmed her troubled mi ml. Presently she turned from the main 
thorough fa re into a walk leading to a cluster of buildings She mounted the steps and once gaining 
entrance rushed to the parlor of the building. Her slip lay on the table, conspicuous and condemning. 
It was now ten minutfis past the hour indicated on the slip. She glanced furtively toward the door. 
Feverishly she started for the exit. A hand fell on her s Ik Milder. The lady <d' the day had accosted 
her. A quiet voice said, "Pardon me, Mary, but you dropped your handkerchief." 



An Indian chief came wandering back 

To his dear haunts of old. 
Toward Raleigh, N. 0., lay his track, 

His story I'll unfold. 

He went just out of Raleigh, 

Where had been his hunting ground, 

He saw many a pretty dolly, 
As he slowly gazed around. 

It seemed that they had turned his homo 

Into a school for grls ; 
The more this Indian chief did roam 

The more lie saw of curls. 

He saw girls fat, he saw girls thin, 
He saw long hair and bobbed. 

He heard an overwhelming din, 
In his despair he sobbed. 

Then suddenly he cowered low, 

He crouched, in the old way. 
For from the air there seemed to grow 

A sound. No one can say 

If it was human, bird, or beast, 
As it rang out through the trees; 

He stood and trembled as he heard 
It carried on the breeze. 

He quickly dodged behind a tree, 

Prepared to meet the foe; 
He wondered if it be a Cree, 

What tribe, he did not know. 

The poor red-skin was all unstrung, 
Tho' they're hard to embarrass; 

He did not know — someone had sprung 
A joke on Mary Harris.

What We Have Done, '24-25 

16-17: Back to the old grind. New girls pour in. old girl|s return. (Bobbie Green's late!) 
23: Emily Burgwyn didn't get a letter — Mason I 

30: Ruined. Seniors lost their pair of rubbers. r Finally found them in Lib Wood's room. Ellen Meliek 
eouldn't go out. rubbers too small for Her. 

K. Morris got her French. Madame Simhalotti suffering from shock. 

Date night. Very small percentage left waiting. Boys are getting lo lie more punctual. 
Alicia Piatt reported for not studying, False rumor. Must have been Elizabeth. 
Kalherine Martin got box of candy. She won't tell whether it was home-made or not 1 

11: Armistice Day. Spirited oration in Auditorium. Yes, Mr. Jones was there, loo. 
10: Bobbie Green skipped gym. She's in danger of losing her Senior privileges! 
27: Day of preparation — for the feast of Thanksgiving! U. S. Mails overworked. 
28: Thanksgiving — day of eating. Enough food to feed Armenia for a month. Infirmary filled before 


10; No gym — Miss Houchen too stiff. Cause unknown, but res! good for the girls. 
15: General rejoicing. Only a week mine until holidays begin. It's good that there is some excuse for 

the crazy things being done. 
22: Everybody tired out. General leave taking. Santa Claus is coming! 

7: End of freedom. Girls return. Number of days already counted until Spring Holidays. 
12 : Everyone lifeless. Midyear's loom up in near future. Already fear has gripped everybody but a 
few who are just naturally for punishment. 
No one was disappointed in the exams ; they filled all expectations. 
Some spent the morning coming up for air — French Exams. 
Week successfully glided past. Infirmary full, others fallen by the wayside. 
First month of new year at last gone. Six more weeks until holidays. 

2: Groundhog saw his shadow. Inconsiderate of him to come out when the sun was shining. 
12: Junior Ten. Juniors well qualified for summer jobs in cafeterias. Mull Moore could work in any 

18 : Meeting of I. T. D.'s. President (you ask who i — Johnson, of course) , is quoted as saying, "Girls, 

we must hang together; if we separate, we'll bang alone." Dirty work afoot. 
27 : End of another month. Teachers unusually fi ee with surprise tests. As ilns is the second month 
since Christmas we have had both of Miss Turners pleasa nt surprises, 

1: Known as "Moving Day" over the country. St. Mary's would be different, Whattfl life I 
12: Beginning of Spring holidays. No coherent account of departure of girls obtainable. The staff is 

safe in saving that there was no great injnrv, however. 
17. St. Patrick's day. End of holidays. For good account of holidays apply at Chapel Hill. Pamphlets 
free by applying to assistant literary editor. 
First day of spring. No dance of the raindrops as Miss Houchen has given up these wet dances. 
Senior Tea. We're afraid it was a -success. 
Slight discussion on "Immigration" in the Auditorium. No questions answered. 

1: Fool's Day. Miss Morgan missing at breakfast. Reported that she had eloped. One bright sister 
remembered the date, however, and after ten minutes of tearing up our beds the lady in question 
came to breakfast. 
15: Many unusual things happened. Miss Cooke felt the breath of spring and put up her window. 
18: Skinner cleaned house. Threw away her o!d gum wrappers to make room for her trunk in June. 
25: Whimp Jamison spent the entire day trying to walk the length of the hall without stumbling. Spec- 
tators reported progress since she began in February. 

2; Junior-Senior Banquet. Mutt Moore spilled glass of water. We can sympathize with Cat Menzies 
as she had an extra spoon and two extra forks at the end of the last course. She de-clares 
she brought them home for souvenirs. We've been embarrassed by having extra silver, too. 
10: Literary society meetings. Attendance decreasing. Presidents can't account for lessening interest — 

neither can we. 
12: May Day. Only one hole in the campus — Whimp fell in it. We trust the dress will wash. 
14: Ways gave reception for most energetic, conscientious girls in the school. Bobbie reports a good 

time. I always hated to be the only one at a reception, though, 
29; Only several days left and our school daze will be over for this year. 
31: Class day. 

SS: Commencement. We wonder who will be the first bride '. 


Ye Whip 

Published Weakly by Ye Whip-Staff 
Monday, June 1, 1925 

I. M. Muddk, Editor 

N. U. Wilbe Too, Bus, Ugr. 

Notice : Register all complaints 

with the office boy. Jack 

Cost: Per annum, 1 run-over. 
Per copy, 16 lashes. 

Motto: Opportunity bangs but 
once, but our Whip lashes 
unceasingly. Beware ! 

At last, we can exhibit to 
any interested reader, who will 
adjourn to our office, a perfect 
specimen of the exception to the 
rule that "Experience is the best 
teacher," No personal grudge 
is reflected in this article. But, 
as man to man, we ask you — 
would you not suppose that one 
who has previously worked on 
Annual Staffs, until this year, 
would realize the importance, at 
least in some degree, of co- 
operating in picture-taking? 

One hates to mention such an 
mi feminine fate for any gentle, 
ladylike St. Mary's School (Ra- 
leigh, N. 0.) girl, but certain 
of the more Epicurean among 
them are busily engaged in re- 
cuperating from an over-indul- 
gence in the California Fruit 
Store array. Nurses have been 
sent from San Francisco and 
doctors from Chicago to relieve 
the situation in the Mary Eliza- 
beth and Rex hospitals, and in 
the St. Mary's Infirmary. A re- 
markable coincidence in that the 
Annual of the same school this 
same year went bankrupt. "Pay 
Day," an ancient and honor- 
able institution which owes a 
percentage to the Annual could 
not yield up its quota since the 
ill girls were "broke." It is 
assumed they istole the fata! 

A practical conclusion has fi- 
nally been reached by the offi- 
cers of a Southern school. They 
have provided a muffler for a 
lady in charge of a room of 
learning in an "Art Building." 
Pupils are at last able to study 
and to make research undis- 
turbed by her ceaseless buzz of 

Ts she so clever? I wonder. 
Who? Oh, a girl generally cred- 
ited with cleverness. Oh, we 
don't say she couldn't be, but 
we do say she won't be. But 
then, it is so much easier to read 
the Cosmo and to let others do 
your work. And such a grntify- 
ing thing to rest on their 

Would that mail-line "fudgers" 
would meet their Waterloo too. 
Few are the girls who read this 
who are not immediately suf- 
fused with a telling rosy confu- 
sion (not at all unbecoming, we 
must confess.) Why a girl who 
starts at the fourth from the be- 
ginning should be shoved back 
into twentieth — or more — place, 
is not only obscure, but also ob- 
viously selfish. Down with the 
"fudgers I" 

Our opinion about those who 
feast upon our canine friends is 
unprintable. But we consider 
those who attend marshm allow 
rousts as no less vulgar. Yet in 
the above-mentioned school, 
there is a slrange. unaccountable 
cult of marshmallow fiends- Its 
worshippers are known to be 
drawn chiefly from the high and 
exclusive orders of Seniors. 
Treason in the high places — yea, 

It is further reported — but 
only as most idle chatter, of 
course, that many of the same 
grits plus some others, nil of 
whom are among the most influ- 
ential in school frequently in- 
dulge their weakness for pulled 
candy. Radiators evidently at- 
tain a great heat in that 


beg leave to bring before 

the court of school justice any 
food scavengers, chiefly those 
girls guilty of attending two 
class parties in one evening. 
All words are futile in a case 
of this sort. We leave the ver- 
dict entirely to the readers sense 
of justice. Think of the poor 
starving Esquimaux who would 
have been glad to have had one 
of their six plates (apiece) of 
ice cream, gleaned so out- 
rageously from parties to which 
they were invited and parties 
from which they were barred 
alike. Justice will out. 

The Rumble Staff wishes to 
take this occasion" to thank the 
thoughtful girl who showed them 
the necessity of locking up (and 
hiding the key to the box) of all 
the copy and cuts used. Our 
only regret is that they didn't 
show us sooner (and on less 
valuable material) the need of 
such precise care. Or they 
might even have saved us the 
necessity of locking material by 
waiting until all copy was col- 
lected before satisfying (per- 
manently) their curiosity. 

Many generations of little (?) 
feet have worn a smooth path 
across the grass from Smedes 
to the May Day Fir Tree. Per- 
il a ps you ask w h y . A n odd 
fact in connection with that 
same tree is that on the far 
side the grass grows abundantly, 
nay, luxuriously, and that the 
soda fountain at the corner drug 
store has prospered. What, oh 
Guardian of the Treasurer, is 
the connection between the 
store, the tree, the grass, und 
Smedes? Why have all the 
dopes reached this ignominious 
end when they might do the 
same for the girls as they have 
for the grass '!

The "Stage Coach" could never Have come into existence had il not been for 
the cooperation of Mr. Way, Miss Morgan, Miss Katie and Miss Sutton. It 
could never have been planned had it not been for the patient and inspiring 
wisdom of Miss Turner — or carried out, if it had not been for her assistance in 
the difficult places and her optimism throughout. It could never have been put 
through without the advice and backing of Mr. Tucker. We are very grateful 
In tin in all, and desire tn acknowledge to them our appreciation for their assistance. 

Mis. Mairiot has been the loyal friend of the Seniors, the school, and the 
champion of the Annual. As Seniors and Annual Staff members we could not do 
without her. She has been so patienl in the millions of tunes we have run to 
her. She has been so unflurried in all our little dilemmas. She has been so sweet, 
so helpful and so motherly, as well as efficient and business-like, that we love her. 

Miss Turner and Miss Houchen were both instrumental in grouping the pictures. 
Without them, the groups would have straggled across the page in the most regard- 
less manner. 

Count the words in the "Stage Coach" and you will be surprised tit their 
number. You will be almost astounded In find that they were nearly all typed by 
one girl. As the Typist is nut always considered a member of the staff, The 
"Stage Coach" is not afraid to boast of Lillian Adam's patient, cheerful, untiring 
and always efficient services, and it welcomes an opportunity to thank her for 

Many of the girls outside of the "Stage ( 'each" Staff have performed cheerfully 
many of the numerous little tasks that make an annual. We arc especially indebted 
to Ellen Graves lor her poetry, Louise Becker, Virginia Lay, Dorothy Dougherty, 
and Elizabeth Marshal for their art work; Bobbie Green for her photography 
and calendar, and to all the Seniors for their ungrudging cooperation in little 
stores and Annual Entertainments. 

We are grateful to the school for patronizing our "Little Store" (and to Mr. 
Tucker and Mr. Way for giving it to us); to the advertisers for realizing the 
worth of their investment; ami to Mr. Heck, of Edwards and Broughtoii, for his 
patience with an utterly ignorant stall, for his ideas, and for the consideration and 
interest he litis always shown to our St. Mary's "Stage Coach."

^ J 1S10NS created by the imagination 

v/ precede the achievement of any really 

great accomplishment. The ability to 

weave the threads of imagination into the 

finished fabric is equally important. 

1 1 has been the privilege of the 

Edwards &f Broughton Printing 

COMPANY to interpret the ideas of the Staff 
and create in material form their vision. 

From the art work and engravings to 
the finished book, this volume is the result 
of organized cooperation with the Staff. 

Such able cooperation is one of the 
"visions" which precede the building of a 
successful business, and is a pan of the 
working policy of the EDWARDS S? 

Broughton Printing Company. 

To those Staffs desiring complete 
cooperation from art work and engravings 
to trie finished book, we offer unexcelled 
service. Complete service means undivided 
responsibility as to the result — one organ- 
ization to correspond and talk with — one 
trained director to merge the many ingre- 
dients into the finished product. 

You, too, may be proud of your annual.
